Golf courses are exempt from the new drought restrictions

Here is a quote from https://www.sjwater.com/news/topic/new-drought-restrictions

"Use of water for outside plants, lawn, landscape, and turf areas more often than every other day, with even numbered addresses watering on even numbered days of the month and odd numbered addresses watering on the odd numbered days of the month, except that this provision shall not apply to commercial nurseries, golf courses and other water-dependent industries."

So they are asking us to reduce water use by 30% and exempting golf courses. There is just too much wrong with that...

The average golf course uses 312,000 gallons of water per day and there are 850 golf courses in California, which works out to about 260 Million gallons of water a day...
